Sensitive subject and probably will close it if it gets bad. But I think the push for diversity is misunderstood. I've read all the counterclaims and heard people say its just for money to mass appeal (my argument...so they should only appeal to you or a small or large majority...there the bad guys? in that situation) or that it's ruining old characters or stories by changing them, (old characters were made at a time when maybe it wasn't easy to push a person of a different appeal), or just make your own characters (yeah from scratch, in an environment full of media saturation unlike when superman or batman existed to become the biggest selling comic in history.)
TLDR: My point, I've heard the talk, but what do people really think. Are people against the diversity (this doesn't just include what you think, it includes amputees, deaf, wheelchair, etc to bipolar, to an inferiority complex, and the easy take against looks.
Please stay civil.
To answer the question: somehow companies who on paper only want money (they don't) are feeling more nice. Yes, it is worth it IMO, I'm willing to hear arguments. I think the sooner we stop getting up in arms and acknowledge shared experiences the sooner we realize there are a lot of games to play and more as we stop ignoring canon characters or whatnot.
